The NC Women of Color Research Network

NC Women of Color

The NC Women of Color Research Network (NC WoCRN) is a statewide network of researchers representing academia, government, and industry. The network is a product of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Working Group on Women in Biomedical Careers and its Women of Color Research Network (WoCRN) . The NIH WoCRN was established to address challenges faced by women and minorities entering and advancing in scientific careers. North Carolina is the second regional chapter established in 2014. The mission of the NC WoCRN is to promote career advancement by broadening participation of women researchers and scientists of color, establishing collaborations and partnerships, multi-level mentoring, outreach, and professional networking.

Fully supported by NIEHS and in partnership with academia and industry, the NC WoCRN is an active group that engages its members in professional development activities and events throughout the year, including an annual symposium, webinars, workshops, and social gatherings.
